THE DEBATE

Banking system: reform, what reform?

Former Manchester United star Eric Cantona urged followers to help him bring down a "criminal and corrupt" banking system by withdrawing their savings. Thousands signed up to the "cashpoint revolution", but after numerous warnings by French politicians and bankers, only a handful of people actually did it. Capitalism remains intact, but the incident has highlighted the level of public anger against bankers. Is that anger justified? And have banking reforms actually made any difference?

A debate with Laura Baines and guests:

Frédéric BONNEVAY, Economist at the Fiscal Policy Forum
Sofiane ABOURA, Professor of Finance at Paris Dauphine University
Pat LEAHY, Political Editor for Sunday Business Post (by phone from Dublin)

Programme prepared by Bilal Tarabey and Perrine Desplats
